A collection of classical works given the synthesizer treatment. A homage to Wendy Carlos and my father's record collection.

The only thing this release has in common with Muzak is that they are both instrumental. This is purely electronic, and very well done at that. The arrangements are musically dynamic. Even these well-known classical favorites contain surprises.
The electronic instrumentation is impressive, especially the decay rates. There are many layers of instrumentation, so the pieces keep your attention and keep you smiling!
This release is great fun and recommended to all who enjoy electronic classical renditions.
My only complaint is that there is no licensing listed. If it were Creative Commons licensed (by-nc-sa, for instance), then I'm sure we would be hearing Underwood's tracks in films and television.

Elevator Muzak, But Listenable
This really is the kind of music that is heard in elevators. However, It is OK. Still, It's cheap, lifeless production and boring arrangements make this forgettable. I honestly don't see the connection to Wendy Carlos, Since her music was exciting and fresh, while this is dull and sounds like a MIDI tune.
